If you've listened to Jake before, this isn't a particularly inspired set compared to his other work. Recording is crisp, but the audience is infuriatingly loud compared to the music. If you crank up the volume to hear the soft notes, then applause blasts. Also, you can hear silverware and dishes in the background. Not bad, but noticeable. The other problem is track commentary at the _start_ of each track, which I haven't seen much before. When I click a track, I want to hear the music immediately.
One star off for mediocre playing and one star off for loud audience and track editing.
